Description

Hello folks,
I think would be good to have an option for choosing the SRS when creating a new vector layer.
This could be done in some ways:
- Using the same SRS of the project
- Prompt user for the SRS list just like is done with save as shapefile

What do you think?

Bye
Luca

That's already available. In the CRS tab of Settings/Options you can select if you want to be prompted for a CRS, use the project's CRS or a preselected CRS. That setting is also used when creating new shape files.

Loading an existing layer and creating a new one are 2 separate things.

I believe that a CRS of a newly created layer should be handled by a separate setting in Settings>Options, defaulting to inhertiting the CRS of the current project.

The exsting Settings>Options>CRS implicitely states it is for "When layer is loaded that has no CRS".

I changed the wording to inlcude newly created layers, the difference is not that big that it warrants a separate setting. Fixed in .
